Thanks to these investments, a financial boost will be given to sectors such as circular economy and healthcare and a positive social impact is to be expected.
Thanks to EU support, Croatian and Slovenian startups will benefit from Croatia’s first social impact fund, Feelsgood. The European Investment Fund contributed half of the capital of this €30 million-strong Fund, with its financing supported by the Juncker Plan’s European Fund for Strategic Investments. Feelsgood Fund will invest in Croatian and Slovenian startups from the agriculture and farming, circular economy, financial inclusion, education and healthcare sectors.
As of September 2019, the Juncker Plan has mobilised €433.2 billion of additional investment, including €1.2 billion in Croatia. The Plan is currently supporting 972,000 small and medium businesses across Europe.
